Andy and Judy Daigle have been singing together for a few years. It’s a duo built upon common ground. Each draw from a wealth of experience they received while singing with various choruses and choirs throughout their lives. As folk singer/songwriters they have been able to explore many different genres and facets of folk music including country and traditional. They effectively use the guitar and mandolin to set the mood and character of each song. In addition, their performances are highlighted by the quality of their vocal work, each individually and joined together with beautiful harmonies.
Both New England natives, Judy is from southeastern Massachusetts where she was introduced to folk music at an early age through her mom’s Neil Diamond and Peter, Paul and Mary records. Andy was born in Maine into a musical family. He spent most of his youth in upstate New York where he grew up listening to folk and church music while traveling with his family before eventually settling in the Boston area.
Interestingly enough, Judy is related to Fred Pike, the man credited with bringing Bluegrass to the state of Maine. Although Judy prefers listening to 80’s rock bands, she hasn’t quite convinced Andy to adapt some of those songs into their repertoire.
